While details surrounding the way the 52-year-old got hurt stayed silent, we did know that he did NOT have an on-set accident.
But now, sources are telling Entertainment Tonight that the real reason the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie got delayed while the actor flew to the States for surgery has everything to do with Amber Heard‘s recent domestic violence claims.
According to insiders, the 30-year-old told some of her close friends that her now-estranged husband hurt his hand last March because he had punched a wall during an argument they had Down Under.
Wow. That would certainly explain why details surrounding his injury were kept so hush-hush.
Based on pictures the Texas native presented, the blow from the device bruised her face.
We’ll keep you updated as more information comes out about this controversial case.
